Cold, chilly, and with Christmas a distant memory, for all the wellness we can do at home, sometimes you just want a little sunshine. Here are some of our favourite spa hotels to escape the winter blues…
It’s not the sunniest time of the year, but there’s a bright freshness to Mallorca around now that’s wonderfully tranquil. The popular holiday island in the Balearics doesn’t attract the crowds until the summer, but for peace, quiet and refreshing light it’s perfect for singles, couples and anyone untethered by the school holidays.
Stay at Jumeirah Port Soller Hotel & Spa for a luxurious way to experience the Spanish island. Its clifftop position allows for sea views from all around the hotel, including the glass surrounds of the indoor pool and sauna. So swim and stay warm, go trekking, cycling or do a little yoga. Enjoy a drink or two on your private balcony and dine in style for a total sense of wellness.
Not far from Cannes, for those looking for superb food and wine, it’s hard to beat an escape to France. The five star hotel sits in one of the most stylish regions of France, surrounded by vines and olive groves.
The hotel has a Michelin Star gourmet restaurant that’s overseen by chef Xavier Burelle. Meanwhile, the spa has a suite of thermal pools and a Japanese inspired style. Look out across the cypress trees and you can’t help but feel extremely smug about life.
Most of us don’t have to be asked twice if we want to go to the Maldives. To stay at Soneva Fushi however, is to stay at one of the most awe-inspiring destinations in the world.
A paradise island but with all the facilities and five star service you could ask for, it’s exceptionally romantic. Fancy yourself a bronzed goddess with hair flowing and always dressed in your swimsuit? This is the place to be. Stay in villas with private pools and lounge areas, dine under the stars and watch dolphins swim by.
Just 25-minutes from Faro Airport, Anantara Vilamoura Resort is superbly easy to get to. While it is ideal for couples or friends, with style in abundance and a pool that is adult only, it is also easy and welcoming for families.
The spa is indulgent, with a Turkish bath and beautiful historic treatments. There are five restaurants to choose from, a golf course, and plenty of activities available for children of all ages, so everyone has the chance to relax and unwind.
In a luxurious environment where every possible whim is catered for, Aphrodite Hills Hotel and Residences offers accommodation in a variety of different guises. From suites to private villas and apartments, while everything is on site, it is much like a village where you are able to find your own private space.
Dine in any one of the 11 bars and restaurants, indulge in the phenomenal range of spa facilities. Then spend all day enjoying your down time. Stroll in the gardens, read a good book, drink juices and smoothies, and simply have time to yourself watching the world go by. There’s always something to do, and always space to just be by yourself without ever feeling lonely.
A chance to really look after your health but in a thoroughly enjoyable environment. Longevity Cegonha Country Club is a space where you can take a precision approach to wellbeing without compromising on luxury. Visit with a friend, a partner, or by yourself.
Spend the day enjoying the spa facilities, taking guided healing and meditation classes or hiking along the nearby trails. At meals enjoy healthy food on their wellness and detox meal plan (alcohol is restricted), and take advice from their experts. It’s superbly tranquil and perfect for gaining a positive mind, body and soul perspective.
